  • COMPLETION DATE
    2007

Overview

Thornton Tomasetti provided structural design, blast mitigation and curtain wall consulting services for the $26.5 million renovation and addition to United Airlines’ Terminal 1 at O’Hare International Airport.

The curbside addition involved the reconstruction and extension of the existing 750-foot-long terminal, by moving the façade 20 feet out toward the roadway, to contain new glass-enclosed vestibules and curbside check-in locations with small canopies. The 10,000-square-foot south building addition consisted of a single-story expansion of the existing terminal building for a new security checkpoint and circulation between Terminals 1 and 2. The expansion also included provisions for the addition of a future mezzanine level.
